Thread Details

The PUBLIX thread is IMHO the best grocery store thread around heart
Here's a little chat area for us all to share info, recipes, rant's, raves and whatever else we want without clogging up the regular weekly deals thread for PUBLIX. If we want to share super deals we find in other stores or whatnot that's ok too heart

I think we all are such a great family that it's a good to have our own special place Grouphug


You can post basically anything you like in here but let's keep deals info in the actual PUBLIX thread. All are welcome and basically no major rules except be kind and courteous of other's and treat each other with respect. Other than that let's all have some fun! Also you don't have to shop at PUBLIX to share in the chat or whatnot... we like everyone.

I haven't seen one...would love info on Petsmart deals too. Getting low on animal food, both dog and cat, and the deals there are hit or miss.

I do know that Petsmart sent me an email with a 15% off in store q (not much, but it's something, right)...it seems to be universal usage for everyone (a lot of their q's print with your name and petperks card number on it, but this one didn't. See if this link [petsmart.com] works...if not, I'll upload my PDF.

After I got that email, I logged in to my Petperks account and clicked on coupons. There are MQ's for $2/1 Purina One Beyond cat food and $2/1 Purina One Beyond dog food. They print with your name and Petperks number and say "Valid at Petsmart stores through 12/31/11", but are MQ's with retailer remit info. Can print to PDF...

There were a few other q's in my account, including $5 off Biljac dog food and $5 off a hamster and a couple others (B?G1 Royal Canin cat food cans, some treat for free wyb a certain dog food...don't remember them all now...sorry!)
Are your pets used to a certain food? Whiskas cat food is super cheap at Publix this week. But if they don't eat that, have you seen this?

I don't know if they would work at Publix, but if they did they may take the TQ with it...if you can use it on the small boxes they would be a slight mm.

Making pork in the crockpot with dr. pepper. I had it from last November (yeah, I think I mentioned before I don't drink soda often) rolling between some rr at walgreens. Embarrassment Hope it works, I need a different way to use them up. I've heard too that you can make cake with it. Maybe I should try that...I have so many cake mixes to tinker with! yummy

I found http://slickdeals.net/permadeal/58956 this deal while I was surfing SD this morning. I am going to search around some more for a good blog Smilie

I will probably go this weekend and try this deal though.

I am actually really picky on what I feed my animals. I buy the cheap/free stuff for the shelter, but only feed Nutro, Blue Buffalo, Wilderness, Castor & Pollux, etc at home. I've been lucky to have Q's for one or more of those at any given time, but there seems to be a bit of a dry spell on them right now. I've probably got a month or so before I run out completely, so I'm OK for now, but I'm so used to seeing 10 bags of dog food piled up in the corner that I'm feeling a bit panicked. I'll probably pick one up with the 15% q just to allay the fears but hold out for a better deal so I can stock up again.

Linky no worky?

Huh, that link isn't working for me either, at least on my phone. 404 error. Guess I'll have to see if it works on my desktop.

Weird, link works for me. Wayshar and I posted the same link though. Authority cat food at Petsmart 4 lb bag for $0.99 AC and a few people reported tearpads for 2 free cans wyb the bagged food. Not sure if that's a brand you're willing to feed, but a step up from Whiskas for sure laugh out loud

Very odd...it works on my desktop, but not my phone. Hmmmm...SD must have something against the mobile folks laugh out loud

I haven't ever looked at Authority before...I'll have to check it out. THANKS to both of you!!!!

Wonder if the 15% will work on top of it? Edit: probably not...the Authority q is a store q. But maybe...?
Edit again!: reports in that deal's thread say the 15% q works too Whee

Where do all the $X off $Y (competitor or not) come from? Expired Publix $5 off $30 or $5 off $35 cannot be used here.

There isn't one single Publix in Huntsville that has Sav-A-Lot as a competitor. There are no Winn-Dixies here, so they aren't a competitor.
Mine are all Save-A-Lot, occasional WD & Albertson's

I feel like ranting and this is the best place possible. A few days ago I got 4 of those 1 stop 1 shop booklets and noticed that they were all missing the dropps coupons. I thought ok publix must have cut them out for some reason since they did not want PQs to go with their sales. Turns out some lame jerk had cut them out and put the booklets back. Well I got a couple more today and they did have the dropps coupons but when I went to get the product I noticed that someone had taken every single MQ off the product. WHY? The product is free so wtf are you saving the coupons for. Oh wait ebay. To the jerkoff who stole yes STOLE all the coupons from the weldon blvd store in lake mary, FL I will be watching out for you and so are the employees who are also sick of it. Play by the frickin rules and stop being a jerk. If the product is free with the coupon then take the damn product along with the coupon and stop being an asshole.
Maybe they were being considerate - as they only wanted/needed the Dropps coupon - and didn't want to take the whole book in case someone else could use the other coupons.

Quote from kallison423 View Post :
The ones here definitely had them, you could still see the clear backing where the coupon was.

Anddd I got my Shabby Chic bedding today for 75% off woot Now I just need to decide on the colors. I originally wanted pink (and I picked one up), but the khaki/beige is growing on me and I could use the magenta sheets I got last week with it. Also picked up a soft blanket in a pretty green for $14.98- can't believe someone would pay $60 for it! It's the same material as some of the college blankets, but it's a full/queen, which is super nice.
woot woot I want to go to Target so badly, but I am so thoroughly tired. I have to go to P and CVS tomorrow, so maybe I'll throw T in there too (lots of planing/cutting/listmaking to do though). My entire day is spent taking the 16-month old and the 3.5-year old off the couch (think 5 Little Monkeys jumping on the bed couch)

I'm really annoyed...

DH had what he thought was a 'good dental appt' yesterday, the person there said everything looked good, etc.

Well, *then* I get a call from someone at the office saying that he has two cavities. She said that the dentist got there (she was late and did not examine him) and was looking at x-rays.

I'm already not feeling as comfortable with this (she never examined him AND I tend to be conservative with treatment trying to arrest the decay first--which I've done in the past) as this was not the original dentist we saw at this practice, sadly the other dentist at the practice we loved passed away.

So, then today I get a treatment plan for him sent to the house for THREE fillings?!? Already called them and supposedly someone is going to call me back. I don't like the way this was handled...at all! And, for him to 'spontaneously' get three new cavities after we officially have to switch to the new dentist? This does not feel good to me...

(I think I mentioned that over a decade ago when I first moved to Florida and saw a 'new' dentist it was 'claimed' that I needed 9 fillings. YEAH, 9! Ran the hell away from that dentist and to another dentist that said just what I knew I needed none! Mad)

Ok, I ran some numbers on the Authority deal. If by chance anyone is interested in dog food instead of cat food, the 8lb bags come up to 44 cents per pound after 15% and $5 (I assumed the 15% comes off first, so if that's not true, the numbers would change a wee bit). Based on the starting price of 9.99, total should be $3.49 + tax.

If the 15% does come off first, the cat food is a slight MM...

1.58 (2 cans)
5.99 (4# bag)

7.57 total

-1.14 (15%)
-5.00 (dry food q)
-1.58 (2 cans free q)

-7.72 in q's

Net $.15 in overage to help pay for tax or apply towards something else (I have no idea how PS registers handle overage, so YMMV)

Even if the 15% doesn't come off first, you are still looking at some seriously cheap or free cat food. Whee

I'm so with you! I feel NO motivation to shop here though. I'm so exhausted here it's not funny....I haven't eluded much to the fact I've been playing single mom a lot recently. DH has been travelling for work a lot, and I'm thoroughly worn out. I was thinking the other night that I have all the signs of depression here, but I don't feel sad, I just feel exhausted and worn out! I need like a week off to sleep. I'm just so drained.

The only positive is that the sale ads haven't been that great, so I'm not really missing much or anything I absolutely need!

You and me both! I actually answered the questions on the depression commercial, all but sad. I feel like I'm playing single mom too - DH is here, but he's been sick since March and is now recovering from surgery. I get aggravated because (I get he can't do much physical stuff), but come on - nothing's wrong with your voice! We're sitting side by side right now (both on our own netbooks), yet I'm the one constantly saying "Faith, don't push your sister", "Ava don't put that in your mouth", "stop jumping" "get off her head" "get down".......ugh!

I do WANT to go at least to CVS. My aunt uses Revlon exclusively and they have her lipstick on ECB deal - so I want to stock up for Christmas for her. However, I get exhausted trying to plan little $25, $20 (whatever) trips. I just want all 6 lipsticks, but what the heck would I do with a $30ecb??!!
